“Away from the tourists, a bit!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

Having spent most of our previous visits in the Leidseplein district, we found the Jordaan to be much more interesting and atmospheric. There are great little shops, that give you the impression you are genuinely in the local community - bike repairs, bakeries, small cafes, craft jewellers, etc.

“A nice place to stroll”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

We were told that this is the 'it' place to live in Amsterdam, and it definitely has charm. It's a nice place to stroll for an hour or so, with lots of little shops and places to grab a bite to eat.

“Just wander”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

This area is full of small shop, fashion, art and small eateries and bars. Just wander from place to place, stopping occasionally to to drop in for breakfast, brunch, lunch, drinks or dinner. You are spoiled for choice in this area and most are good value and quality.

“Picturesque”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

The Jordaan is the most picturesque neighbourhood in Amsterdam that I have seen. It has super cute small cafes and bars along the canal. The best way to explore the Jordaan is by cycle. Makes you want to live there.
